Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week (9/28/09 - 10/2/09) is an event to raise awareness about censorship around the globe. We are trying to combat the injustices against writers who have been punished for expressing their beliefs. Amnesty has teamed up with the library at Ledyard High to encourage students to read banned books and sign petitions and speak up for the writers around the world who have been imprisoned or treated unfairly.

Hey guys! I'm glad to see that we had so many people at our first meeting! Don't forget that this week (September 28th through October 2nd) is Banned Book Week. If you are interested in helping out with Banned Book Week or have any questions, talk to Colleen Lavin, Mr. Jannke, Katelyn or myself. Please visit the Banned Books table during your lunch wave. Like Katelyn said, if you have any ideas for projects for this year let us know! We'd love to hear them and get them started!

Our first meeting went great! Tori was selected as our project coordinator. We have quite a large group this year, which will allow us to work on many projects at once. Anyone who has a project in mind that they would like to do or even lead should try to talk to me, Tori, or Mr. Jannke before the next activity period. Or, if you are interested in leading a project but don't have a topic in mind, talk to me or Tori, we have plenty of information for you!
